I needed a laptop computer for my Bible training classes. I prayed and asked God to help me get a laptop. I continued praying about this every day.
Several months later, a package came for me in the mail. It was a brand new laptop! I was so happy and thankful. I do not know who sent me the computer, but I know that God answered my prayers.
It is important that we pray to God. But we should not only ask for things. When we pray, we should confess our sins and ask for forgiveness. We should also thank God for the blessings He gives us. And, we should pray for other people who need help.
In our Bible Reading today, Paul lists some things that Christians should do. In verse 6 he says, “Don’t worry about anything, but pray and ask God for everything you need, always giving thanks for what you have.”
When you pray, be sure to thank God for His love and for answering your prayers.
